    The two photos I like best are the first one and the last one. The last one says "male" more than the first, though I like the first photo better overall.

    Take the sepia motorcycle out of consideration, as the color one is much better.

    Awesome shots Eliot.

    I guess we see images differently because in my opinion #10 is most MALE

    I like #15.

    In that shot he looks like a guy who all the other males should respect.

    Ones I would drop from the running:
    #4 - looks like he's eating a cookie, which doesn't really scream "male" to me :tongue:
    #6 - cool shot, but again doesn't really evoke "maleness" to me
    #13 - the shot following it (#14 is just much stronger)
    #16 - not very strong thematically for me, more documentary than anything

    My favorites
    #7 - Love the incongruous tough guy look combined with the popping bubble gum. Says "I don't care how this looks", very male
    #15 - my favorite choice; everything in this one from background to subject evokes male/toughness/hard work to me
